How to Submit a Closing or Delay Due to Weather
Need to submit a closing, delay, or cancellation due to the weather? There are two ways to do so.
The first way is to call us directly. Our office number is (508) 999 - 6690. Our front desk contact will ask you for the code word to confirm that you are actually calling from the school, business, or organization. Sorry kids, no prank calls here. Once we know that the submission is legitimized, we’ll add you to our ever-growing list at WBSM.com.
The quickest way to submit a closing or delay to all media outlets is by registering with the Rhode Island Broadcasters Association. All you have to do is register with them (for an annual fee) and they accept emergency activation messaging throughout the year. This comes in handy when you don't have time to call each and every media outlet to inform them that you're shutting down early or won't be open for the day. “If you are a non-profit business, contact LNeedham@ribroadcasters.com with your business name, address, contact information and Tax Identification number to have the fee waived within the system to allow you access to the closing page.”
